Sony MWC 2019 teaser confirms CinemaWide 21:9 display

Sony's smartphones haven't generated much hype for a few years now, hinting at the brand's declining popularity. Once notorious for having the worst leakage problem among OEMs, it almost seemed that tipsters and leaksters have lost interest in Sony's upcoming phones. This year could be different, though, mostly thanks to Sony weird design choice. And thanks to its own official teaser for MWC 2019, we can now indeed expect its next smartphones to have ultra-wide, or ultra-tall, screens.

Xperia L3 leaked with traditional, entry-level features

Just when you thought Sony was done with the letters, along comes a new leak that says otherwise. Of course, the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus might just be its new mid-range line and that doesn't mean the company has abandoned those who can't afford even that. It is still keeping its Xperia L series alive and it will be revealing a certain Xperia L3 at MWC later this month for those who need or have less. Or for those who don't want their phones to be insanely long.

Xperia XA3 to be called Xperia 10, hints at rebirth

Ever since the iPhone X, everyone seems to have gone crazy over the number 10 and the letter X. Granted, Samsung's Galaxy S is really reaching its tenth iteration (the Galaxy Note skipped a number), but others seem to be making random changes to reach it, sometimes for no evident reason whatsoever. The latest to join that trend is Sony, who is now believed to announce the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus later this month. Call them by any other name, however, and they're still the Xperia XA3 and Xperia XA3 Plus, respectively.

Sony Wena Wrist smart strap for your regular watch escapes Japan

Sony's Wena Wrist smart watch strap is finally spreading outside of Japan, though the unusual upgrade to make traditional watches connected is still a tough sell.

Xperia XA3 Plus brings a larger ultra widescreen option

It seems that Sony will be using every trick it knows on its smartphones this year, from multiple cameras to large image sensors to ultra-wide displays. That is if the leaks and rumors are on the mark. One of the biggest recipient of those leaks is the Xperia XA3 because of its expected insanely long screen. But if a 21:9 aspect ratio display isn't enough for you, Sony apparently has a larger Xperia XA3 Plus to fill that need.

PlayStation Classic gets a deep price cut at Walmart

PlayStation Classic gets a deep price cut at Walmart

Though Sony has had an outstanding console generation in pretty much every sense, there was at least one stumble in the PlayStation Classic.

Sony's mobile business is in deep trouble. Despite its attempt to reinvent its Xperia line, its previous earnings are leaving analysts wondering if this year will be Sony Mobile's last hurrah. The company, however, has always been stubborn about its smartphones, despite and in spite of all the odds.
